I keep thinking I want to pick this blog back up again, and have started and deleted quite a few times. It’s been so long that it’s hard to know where to start, so maybe just quick little thoughts will help me get back into the flow of things. So here are a few things that have been going on around here:
- I finished nursing school. That was probably the hardest thing I’ve ever done, thank god that’s over! I’m so glad to just work and go home, no more classes/homework/papers.
- The boys are doing well, still plugging away at the adoption process. Their mom has decided to dig her heels in and fight which has been interesting. It’s interesting because her version of getting her shit together involves things like stalking the kids’ therapists, threatening to shoot the caseworker, getting beaten up and put in the hospital by yet another boyfriend, things like that.
- We got another baby! A 6 month old little girl with a couple broken legs, in this shit show of a cast called a hip spica cast. This thing goes from a little under her armpits to her ankle on one side and her toes on the other. It’s been a crazy couple days trying to remember how to take care of a baby that age and learning how to finangle the diapering situation, the learning curve is steep my friends.
- All three of the kids have been surprisingly awesome with the baby. All of them are doing everything they can to help out, it’s so cute! Whenever she cries at least one of them comes running and tries to soothe her.
